Can "X" be classed as a Spin n' Spew??? It looks like it will be very rough as well!! What do you think?

I believe the ride will be extremely smooth, a bit disorienting, but not to get sick over

I completely disagree. Arrow's future is riding on this sucker, if it flops, they will slowly fade away. Too much is at stake with X for Arrow to not make this thing smooth. New Arrow's are smooth, Tennessee Tornado gets nothing but positave (no headbanging) reviews.

I would bet a decent sum of money that X will be extremely smooth.

You said it Soggy, I bet the entire industry is watching X, and its pending success or problems. It certainly has the potential to cause a big splash. Personally, I think it will be a success, but if I was a park owner considering purchasing one, I would wait to see how X performs and rides before signing on the the dotted line.

I think the 4 tracks used (2 roll, 2 control) will stiffen the ride and smooth it out. In addition, the Arrow restraint system is said to be very compfortable.

X is the coaster to everyone should be watching. It is a ground breaking concept. If construction stays on schedule, start-up goes well, and it rides anywhere near like it appears that it will, you've got to believe the orders will be piling up in Arrow's mailbox in 2002.

And as soon as it's running two trains consistently, I'm booking a flight to LAX...anyone else?

X doesn't really intrest me. I'm sure it'll be an amazing ride, but I just don't see it as the coolest ride for 2001. IMO I think it's kinda a gimmick coaster... So no, I'm not flying to LA for X. But I did for Goliath last year....:)

I can see how it may be classified as a spin n' spew. It seems that it will give an experince nothing like any coaster to date. That said... I WANNA RIDE! :)

Hey! What's up! I'm a brand new user on this fourm. And as for X, all I can say is X will truly be an extreme coaster. X most likely won't be rough because there's no track above or below you. That's gonna make X even more amazing! I can't wait to see this sucker up and running!

It may be comfortable, but time will tell what it will do to our insides. It'll be huge or a disaster. I can't see there being an in-between with this thing.

I would guess that it will be smooth by virtue of the fact that it isn't going to have a lot of turns. Mostly up/down/rotate. Isn't it the turns (and corkscrews) that makes Arrow's rough?

I really don't understand all this "gimmick" talk. These are the same people saying how awesome X-flight will be. X-flight is just as gimmicky as X, and maybe more so. There's room for traditional coasters as well as coasters based on new ideas, so give the gimmick talk as rest, please.

I hope that it does flop. I have a grudge against Arrow. It's a little coaster called Shockwave that made it. How dare they give me a headache each time I'm on it unless I'm in the first or second car! But anyways, if it fails, it won't be thier first failure. This seems more complex than the Bat was, so does it mean it is more likely to fail, or have they learned (finnaly) from thier mistakes? Well, I hope they didn't. I hate Arrow. That might change as soon as I get to Cedar Point and can ride Magnum.

I don't like the concept either. The spinning just seems like too much. That doesn't mean it's gonna be bad. The only way to know that for sure is to go and ride it.

I don't think it will flop. New Arrows have proved to be smooth and the transitions into the elements are smooth as well (which is what was wrong before). They use the same types of turns and transitions that B&M and others uses. They use compound turns now if I am correct.
